Choose smooth, or incredibly smooth transmission
The ASX range brings you Mitsubishiís proven transmission and drivetrain options. The INVECS III transmission in a 6 speed CVT for 2WD petrol models and 6 speed automatic on 4WD diesel models.
CVT is a clever system that uses a belt instead of cogs, so you wonít even feel a gear change as you accelerate. It delivers perfectly smooth acceleration, even better economy and itís so clever it can Ďlearní your driving style for a more refined ride.
In the 4WD diesel models the 6 speed automatic makes the most of the engines torque by matching the gears perfectly to gain the best performance.
Sport models make driving even simpler with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shift gear change.
Big on safety
ASX employs an integrated system of active and passive safety features; the result is a 5-star ANCAP safety rating as tested on 2WD models - and one very safe vehicle.
All wheel driving modes
4WD Auto Conditions have a habit of changing without warning. With 4WD Auto, your traction system changes with them. It improves grip and makes turning smoother.
4WD Lock Sometimes, conditions hit rock-bottom. Or mud-bottom. 4WD Lock gets you out safely.
Safely does it
Inside, there are driver and passenger airbags, side, curtain and driverís knee airbags - seven in total. There are also three-point ELR seatbelts with pre-tensioners, which take up the slack in the belt and then release it gradually.

A ready supply of power
As with all aspects of ASX, youíre spoilt for choice when it comes to the engine. 2WD models come equipped with the 2.0 L DOHC MIVEC petrol engine. What that means in English is an engine that will whisk you up to highway speeds, but is small and efficient enough to be frugal at the pump. The economy figures say it all, with 7.6L/100Km and emissions of 176g/Km.
AWD models take advantage of a 2.3L Intercooled Turbo Diesel with an impressive 6.0 L per 100Km. With a huge torque figure of 366NM and 112kW of power it's ready to take you from the city and up the ski slopes with ease.
Hill Start Assist (HSA)
If youíre on a steep hill, this system applies the brakes for a few seconds while you move your foot from brake to accelerator, preventing roll back. How civilised.
Active Stability Control (ASC)
Maintains stability and control when cornering, by automatically recognising under-steer and over-steer. It applies brakes to the appropriate wheels to keep you online through corners.
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
IThis technology reduces stopping distances by detecting passengers or heavier loads and automatically increases rear-braking force.
Multi-mode Anti Lock Braking System (ABS)
This allows you to manoeuvre around objects under heavy braking conditions. Outlanderís intelligent 4-channel, 4-sensor braking system works in conjunction with the drive mode to monitor different wheel speeds and activate brakes to individual wheels when required to deliver superior control.
Emergency Stop Signal
All models come standard with an Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) which flashes the rear high-mount stop light under heavy braking to warn following drivers.
High Intensity Discharge Headlamps (HID) With Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS)
Clever self levelling HID headlamps offer brighter illumination for night time driving and AFS provides increased illumination of corners when the car is turning. VRX models only.
